Follow Up on “Senior Sex Is Not A Joke”: Adult Kids and Community Show Support

Yesterday I wrote about the sentencing of a Florida woman on charges of indecent exposure and disorderly conduct because she was caught having sex with a man in a public place, and about the media coverage surrounding that case. One thing I commented on was the sexism and agism in the headlines. Today I googled…

Senior Sex Is Not A Joke

A Florida woman has just been sentenced to six months in jail for disorderly conduct and indecent exposure after being caught having sex in a public place. The sex itself took place in June. In a retirement community. The woman in question was 68 on the night of the public sex, and her partner was…

Never an adult moment?

When Will and I are on road trips, we will every now and then see interesting juxtapositions on billboards and road signs.

Feminism or Fascism: Iceland’s Stunning Ban on Pornography May Be Spreading

Iceland recently made headlines with the latest project on its allegedly progressive agenda: a nation-wide ban on pornography.  No stranger to proscribing activities related to commercializing sex, Iceland has already passed laws banning printed pornography, prostitution and stripping, and has done so all in the name of feminism.  Rattling off the standard laundry list of…

The Sex Issue, National Coalition Against Censorship

INTRODUCTION Sex is, as the late Justice William Brennan said, “a great and mysterious motive force in human life [which] has indisputably been a subject of absorbing interest to mankind through the ages.” However, from 19th century vice societies and public morality campaigns to contemporary attacks on pornography, Americans have been at war over sexual…

Culture Warriors vs. Sex for Pleasure: How the Hypocritical Right Kills Conversation

If prescribing to dogmatic absolutes worked, then the most conservative Christian red states wouldn’t have the highest rates of teen pregnancy, divorce and porn consumption. From the beginning I knew I was being bad. Between mooning over Aquaman and fantasizing about stealing Speed Racer away from Trixie, new ways of coupling danced warm and fuzzy…

Call for Submissions: New Views on Pornography: Sexuality, Politics, and the Law
